Comic KHAN!!!!!! *photo heavy!*

PHEW! That was exhausting! I know, I know, I'm a few days late, but I needed a relaxing vacation after that or I would have just collapsed into a heap. Exhaustion is too simple a word for how I felt the day after Comic Con.

It was nothing like I expected and a million times more better. There was so much there so hopefully I can break it down into a few simple categories for you. Honestly, I was so overwhelmed I almost didn't even do anything!

 Cosplay - Not as much as I was hoping, but still super awesome! Silly me was expecting a nice percentage of people to dress us, but that wasn't the case. That being said, there were still plenty of people in costume and pretty much all of them were amazing.

Panels - Honestly, there was so much to do I didn't end up going to a lot of panels. Sure, I hit the nerdy Chuck Palahniuk one, as well as Mythbusters and Who Framed Roger Rabbit to name a small few, but I expected beforehand that would be all I did. It most certainly wasn't.

Autographs - To be fair, I didn't do much of this. I'm not a big fan of autographs, but there are a few people I was really excited to see there. I'm an artist, so my fandom is MOSTLY with the artist, and I spent FAR too much money on art. It was cool to talk with some of the people behind my favorite comics and video games.

Exhibitions - The ones I went to were actually "off-site" (though right across the street) and open to the public. They were really cool and added quite a bit of fun to our trip. 

Video Games - Want to try out the new consoles? BAM! The PS4 controller is smooth and holds really well. The X-Box...well, it's exactly the same. Maybe I would have liked it more if they had more than one demo game - or at least a demo game that wasn't completely stupid. It was like they wanted to scream "I HAVE TESTICLES!" over and over so they made this boring and dumb game. Save your time. "Ryse" is a bad game.

 ...and last but NOT least, the Exhibit Floor - I can't say enough about this. It's just a quarter mile of pure geekyness. Everything you can think of: art, video games, comics, movies, books, tv shows, it's all just crazy! I spent most of my time here, and I can honestly say I didn't see everything. It was AMAZING! And super crowded. :/

I hope that's enough for you! It was super amazing and I can't wait to go again next year.

Tatooine like you've never seen it before.
